Creating a Permanent Embed Code

If you are planning on using the same Post to go live on more than one occasion, it may be helpful to set up a permanent URL for that specific Live.

To get a permanent URL, you'll need to edit the embed code to use the Channel ID rather than the User ID.

In this example, the User ID is "XYZ123" and the Channel ID is "12345":

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/live_stream?channel=12345" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

You'll find the Channel ID by going here.

Add the editted embed code to your Post and open the website in a private browser window to check if the stream displays without error message.
